If you've used LED bulbs then the current draw will be small so having them on for 30 minutes will be of no impact overall.

+1
A 9v smoke alarm type battery will power an L.E.D for 9 years or something like that
I've got both front&rear foot well lighting plus ford logo puddle lights in operation on mine and never had battery trouble.
Whatever makes you happy though, tis your car mate if you want t fit a switch you can no worrys ;)

They just need to be activated on the GEM
Ford can do this next time its connected to the computer,
Not sure if elmconfig software works on mondeo with modified ELM327 but if it does then you can activate them yourself,

He's renting it as a taxi so can't really do it unless he gets authorisation from his boss/car owners

I'll just keep reminding him that I have 'em and he hasn't lol

They can be added as a plug&play design,
By fitting an illuminated ignition ring light then run a feed from that to new bulb sockets all easily removable and no splicing
